Missy Elliott

Rapper Missy Elliot is in the works to produce a film that accurately portrays her life; from her traumatic past to her rise to fame in the 1990s.

“It’s happening; I’ve just got to find a great writer because I wouldn’t want my story watered down,” she tells Elle Magazine. “I went through a lot, and I accomplished a lot, and I want people to know how it all went down.”

Missy, born Melissa Arnette, was repeatedly raped by an older cousin from the age of eight and also witnessed her father abusing her mother. During the 1990s, she became a star and is the only female rapper to have six certified platinum albums.

Hopefully this means a new Missy album soon. She’s been gone for too long. Would you go see a Missy biopic?
